When you consider aluminum, a humble penny often springs to mind. But copper en masse — shiny and metallic or using a warm patina — is anything but modest.
Copper fireplace surrounds, by way of example, control attention as strong surfaces, yet fit in to any style of decor due to their natural, earthy characteristics. Copper’s malleable qualities allow it to be cut into panels, hammered, wrapped or riveted — the possibilities are nearly endless. In any chosen form, its beauty is flawless and timeless.
